The Point of No Return for Islamic Violence
Up to three million people marched in the largest protest France has ever seen, including more than 40 world leaders. The rally honored the 17 victims of Islamic terror. “Today, Paris is the capital of the world,” said French President Francois Hollande. “Our entire country will rise up toward something better.”
The attack against the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo has gotten the world’s attention, but I’m very skeptical that something meaningful will result from the tragedy. Common sense should tell us that there is something deeply wrong with the Muslim faith, and yet every effort is being made to shift blame away from the followers of the Koran.
Islamists have such monopoly on terror. Every time there is breaking news about gunfire or an explosion in a public setting, you naturally know the perpetrator is at least one Muslim. Over the years, the number of attacks reach into the thousands.
Some of the major incidents are 9/11, the Madrid bombings in 2004, London in 2005, the Kenyan mall, the Fort Hood shooting, Benghazi, the ISIS massacre in Northern Iraq and Syria, Canada’s parliament, the Australia cafe attack, and Boko Haram who recently killed an entire village.
We seem to be at a point where the denial of these terror events has caused us to depart from the fundamentals of reality. When former Gov. Howard Dean was asked for comment about the Charlie Hebdo attack, he immediately dismissed the idea that Islam should be to blame for the attack.
“I stopped calling these people Muslim terrorists,” Dean said on MSNBC’sMorning Joe. “They’re about as Muslim as I am.” He also said he does not believe ISIS is an “Islamic cult” and thinks it would be unwise to “accord [the gunmen] any religious respect.”
The liberal media has made a game out of finding new words to describe the attackers. If you watch a newscast, you’ll hear: Radical, militant, extremist, adherent, sympathizer, terrorist, and lone wolf. They are all inadequate synonyms for the more appropriate word: Muslim. I’ll say it again: Muslim.
I was scanning the news, and I ran across a CNN article titled, “After Paris attacks, 7 questions being asked about Islam.” I knew right away that the CNN would give Islam a free pass. Sure enough, CNN provided the question and then asked Islamic representatives to fill in the answers.
The pro-Muslim bias at CNN is evident when one reporter let a “longtime, Muslim-American source” make this kind of statement without being challenged: “Muslims cannot get a break. Every day there must be an event to suggest Islam is inherently violent. Such acts destroy years of goodwill and work about Islam.”
The claim is made that Islam is a peaceful religion, but propaganda cannot change a lie into the truth. Islam easily rivals Soviet-style Communism in oppression. According to a study on persecution by Open Doors USA’s World Watch List, nine of the ten countries with the worst records for persecution of Christians have populations that are dominated by Muslims.
The peaceful part only comes after they’ve killed all the infidels or forced them to leave the country.
In the light of these latest terror attacks, Saudi Arabia didn’t even have the good sense to delay the flogging of blogger, Raif Badawi. He was convicted of insulting Islam by simply creating a website that promoted freedom of speech. Since Saudi Arabia does not tolerate any type of political dissent, calls from the international community to postpone Badawi’s punishment fell on deaf ears.
There would be far less bloodshed if our leaders read and understood the Bible. In Genesis, we are told that there is a spiritual conflict between Abraham’s two sons. Isaac would be the son of the promise and Ishmael would be cursed as a “wild ass” of a man with his hand against every man and every man’s hand against him (Genesis 16:12).
I think it’s clear to the vast majority of people that the children of Ishmael are the world’s worst trouble makers, but political correctness stands in the way of corrective action. Because Islam is so clearly satanically driven, I think that beyond this point—we are inevitably headed toward the Tribulation judgment.
“For then there will be a great tribulation, such as has not occurred since the beginning of the world until now, nor ever will. Unless those days had been cut short, no life would have been saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be cut short” (Matthew 24:21-22).
